Postdoc position in 3D image reconstruction of Atom Probe tomography data (f/m)


The Vision Lab at the University of Antwerp ( ) has an open position for a postdoctoral researcher to strengthen our tomography research team. Tomography is an image reconstruction technique that leans strongly on large-scale numerical mathematics and computational science. It has a wide range of applications in medicine (CT-scans), industry (nondestructive testing) and science (3D imaging of nanomaterials).
She/he will develop a radically new method for the 3D atomic resolution reconstruction of atom probe data. The technique will be dedicated to the analysis of semiconductor samples in close collaboration with imec (


Applicants are expected to hold a PhD іn computer science, physics, mathematics or engineering. Excellent programming skills and communication in English аrе key assets. Expertise іn tomographic image reconstruction or inverse problems is a plus.

Labs involved: 

The Vision Lab is a research group of the physics department at the University of Antwerp. The Vision Lab has unique expertise in the development of algorithms for reconstruction, processing and analysis of tomographic imaging data. Application domains are x-ray computed tomography (CT), MRI and electron tomography. The working environment is strongly interdisciplinary, combining techniques and insights from physics, mathematics, engineering, and computer science. The Vision Lab has a broad range of national and international collaborations with both academic and industrial partners. Recent publications on tomography can be found on .

Our offer: 

• An exciting 2-year research project in a dynamic and international context (yearly evaluation), possible extension with 2 additional years.
• Multidisciplinary research: close cooperation with imec for atom probe data acquisition
• a world-class research environment with state-of-the-art instrumentation
